2013 Chrysler 200

New for 2013

The 200S used to be a stand-alone trim model on the 200 sedan, but its exterior styling cues – notably the dark grille, black headlamp bezels, projector fog lamps, and polished 18-inch wheels – are now available as part of an S Exterior Package on the mid-grade 200 Touring and high-grade 200 Limited. A new 200S Special Edition package adds a unique grille insert, matte black wheels, and interior trim designed by Carhartt.

Overview

If the 200 isn’t the best example of how a Fiat-backed Chrysler can breathe life into dying models, we don’t know what is. No Chrysler model needed an overhaul as much as the old Sebring did; its clunky exterior, low-rent interior, and subpar ride and handling won it no friends outside the rental car lot. Its transformation into the 200 may not suddenly result in a class-leading midsize sedan or convertible, but it is impressive nonetheless. The 200 sedan finally received the powertrain, chassis tuning, and styling it originally deserved. The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder is still a bit sluggish, but the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 shines, delivering a healthy amount of pep. The 200 convertible -- with your choice of fabric or metal folding roof – remains part of the 200 portfolio; though it feels a bit soft and prone to cowl shake, its is one of the few reasonably priced drop-tops in the segment capable of comfortably seating four passengers. Better yet, it finally receives the suspension upgrades applied to the 200 sedan in 2011. Is the 200 automotive perfection? No, but it’s proof positive that it’s possible to transform an ugly duckling into quite an attractive and affordable swan.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags (except in the convertible); active head restraints for the front seats; traction and stability control; ABS; and a tire-pressure monitor are standard. Automatic headlamp controls are standard on Touring and Limited models.

2013 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition Right Rear Angle
Since its 2009 rebirth, Chrysler has shown its strength in trucks and SUVs, with the excellent 2013 Ram 1500 and 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. But one market that Chrysler has perpetually been an also-ran in the midsize sedan segment. The 2011 refresh of the Sebring, which dropped the race-inspired name for the 200 label, gave the model a sales boost, but still did not put it in the upper echelons of the segment in terms of features, technology or fuel economy. But the 2015 model promises to obliterate the current 200's reputation as a rental-fleet filler.

According to the Chrysler Group, its U.S. dealers collectively sold 156,698 cars, trucks, and SUVs in April 2013. The automaker says that isn’t just an 11-percent increase year-over-year, but its 37th straight month of year-over-year sales growth, and its best April sales posting since 2007.

Chrysler, meet Carhartt. Carhartt, meet Chrysler. Although the two firms first partnered in late 2012 to concoct a line of clothing inspired by Chrysler's "Imported from Detroit" taglines, they've now joined forces to help create the new 2013 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition sedan you see here.

The Chrysler 200 has been a bright spot in the Chrysler Group’s post-bankruptcy renaissance, but it’s overdue for an overhaul. It’s a good thing, then, that Chrysler will reportedly release a 2015 model-year car in January 2014.
